All of us must know and respect our own limitations. I'm an EE and 
teach the design of power systems for audio, but I don't do my own 
power wiring because I'm not good at the mechanical installation 
work that goes with it. I'm also incompetent as a carpenter! 
Likewise, at 67 years old, I don't climb trees or towers, nor am I 
a structural engineer. I hire professionals to do that work.
